I learned about this climb here and decided to do it as a second pitch following a Garden Wall climb. At the top of Garden Wall there are two anchors--this climb begins at the right anchor, which requires a tricky move (5.8 or harder) to reach. Watch out for poison oak as you cross the gully and be careful getting to the first bolt--a fall would really hurt! After the third bolt I reached a sloping ledge but could not find another bolt. I climbed several moves up the steep ramp on the left, which seemed where the climb should continue (and where a bolt should be), but still couldn't find a bolt, so I downclimbed and escaped on easy class 4 terrain to the right, arriving at the Letterman anchor. Now that I'm looking at the route photo I'm seeing that a fourth bolt should have been on the ramp--so either it's no longer there or I'm losing my eyesight... Mar 22, 2010

Floyd,

I lead this yesterday and I found all the bolts where they are supposed to be, though I did find the last bolt a bit harder to spot than those previous. And also if you feel the need, you can sling the tree to prevent falling into poison oak and stinging nettle before clipping the first bolt. May 24, 2010

Found the 4th bolt the second time--don't know how I missed it the first! Jun 1, 2010

OK climb. Well protected. Major poison oak when I was there, but it wouldn't be good old Bishop Peak if there wasn't! May 28, 2011
